For late fall anglers, speckled trout represent a highly prized target. but they can be especially fickle as the weather starts to turn colder. Capt. John Koonce of Shoal Bandit Charters on Johns Island claims the weather may be hard to predict, but the hot trout bite this fall in Charleston-area waters, especially the Stono River, is still hanging on.
One day well be out here in jeans and t-shirts, and the next day well be wearing heavy jackets and toboggans, he said. But the water temperatures are still pretty decent, and the trout bite has stayed with us.
